Victory

Famous quotes containing the word victory:

    Muhammad is the Messenger of God,
    and those who are with him are hard
    against the unbelievers, merciful
    one to another. Thou seest them
    bowing, prostrating, seeking bounty
    from God and good pleasure. Their
    mark is on their faces, the trace of
    prostration....
    God has promised
    those of them who believe and do deeds
    of righteousness forgiveness and
    a mighty wage.
    —Qur’An. Victory 48:35, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)

    One point in my public life: I did all I could for the reform of the civil service, for the building up of the South, for a sound currency, etc., etc., but I never forgot my party.... I knew that all good measures would suffer if my Administration was followed by the defeat of my party. Result, a great victory in 1880. Executive and legislature both completely Republican.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
